No need to flip out: Mobile communication is simple

Small yet mighty: Flip phones never go out of style, are easy to use and fit nicely in any pocket. They also pack a punch when it comes to technical features: The Gigaset GL7 can get online using the 4G mobile Internet access standard and comes with popular apps such as WhatsApp and Facebook already installed. All of this makes it easy to keep in touch with your friends and family and share photos whenever you like, thanks to the built-in camera. The large buttons are easy to read and light up, making this phone incredibly simple to use. The main display measures 2.8" and is clear and easy to read, while the external screen displays news updates, numbers or names of callers, even when the phone is closed. The Gigaset GL7 is therefore the ideal mobile phone for people who don't want the complexity of a smartphone or just want to focus on the essentials.

Great things come in small packages: Phone calls made easy!

Why make things complicated when it could be so easy? The Gigaset GL7 is a convenient and incredibly user-friendly phone: The external screen alerts you to incoming calls, even when the phone is closed, displaying the name or number of the caller. Simply open up the phone to answer the call, then shut it again to hang up. It's that simple — and practical too, as the flip phone design offers an excellent level of protection for the screen and the keyboard. It also helps you to avoid making any accidental calls. When closed, the Gigaset GL7 measures just 11.7 cm. Despite its small size, you won't miss any important updates as the vibration setting will alert you to any calls or messages. The ringer volume and call volume can be each be adjusted to your desired level. And if both your hands are full, you can carry on your conversation using the hands-free function.

Flip it open and go: Browse the web or chat with friends thanks to great apps

Some people prefer to call, while others like to send emails or chat via text or WhatsApp. With the Gigaset GL7 you can do it all: You can use it to make calls, browse the Internet, chat with friends and family, take photos, watch videos, plan journeys and keep up-to-date with your loved ones. WhatsApp is particularly popular for arranging your social calendar, chatting and sharing photos and videos. That's why the Gigaset GL7 has a dedicated WhatsApp button. It's so convenient! The phone also offers access to the popular Facebook, YouTube and Google Maps applications. A huge number of exciting apps are available to download from the app store and you can access the Internet at any time using the browser application. Fast 4G makes browsing the Internet quick and easy, while the user-friendly KaiOS operating system is very straightforward and highly intuitive. And the 2.8" TFT colour display means you can enjoy all of your apps in outstanding clarity.

Straight to the point when you need it most: SOS button and direct dialling keys provide peace of mind

Reach all of your most important contacts at the press of a button: The Gigaset GL7 is a very practical device that is easy to use, while also keeping you safe. Everyone appreciates being able to reach and be reached by others while on the go. And this phone makes it so easy to do so: Simply save the phone numbers of your family members, neighbours or doctor to one of the three direct dialling keys (A, B, C). You will then be able to call them by simply pressing the corresponding key. A special emergency button on the back of the Gigaset GL7 provides even more peace of mind: You don't even need to open your phone at all, just press the SOS button. Pressing this button will dial up to five pre-selected numbers. The numbers will be dialled one after the other until someone is able to answer, making sure that you get the assistance you need as quickly as possible in an emergency situation.

Open up new possibilities: Even more practical functions for your everyday life

It's often only once you start using a phone in your day-to-day life that you find out how well it actually works for you. For example, is it comfortable to hold? Is it easy to open? And do you actually enjoy using all the features of this multi-functional device? You're sure to love everything about the Gigaset GL7: Despite its compact size, this flip phone has a lot to offer. It has two SIM card slots (for nano SIMs), plus you have the option to add another memory card with up to 128 GB of storage, giving you even more space for photos, videos, music and other data. The replaceable battery of the Gigaset GL7 is also perfect for the demands of everyday life: Up to 9 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby time means that you will always be accessible, even when out and about for longer periods of time. And the fixed charging station means the charging process is stress-free too. It's simple and convenient — and the charging station keeps your phone safe and secure.
